MUSD Board votes Monday on budget

Martinez Unified School District Board of Education expects to adopt its next budget Monday.

The 2019-20 budget maintains a positive fund balance at the end of the school year, but Assistant Superintendent Helen Rossi said the District will be able to meet its financial obligations during the subsequent two fiscal years only if $1.8 million in cuts are adopted during that period.

Also on Monday’s agenda is approval of the 2019-20 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and the LCAP Federal Addendum. The LCAP specifies goals, actions and expenditures and addresses eight priority areas for the district’s schools that are funded with the Local Control Funding Formula.

Year-end transfers between funds to balance expenditure classifications also will be adopted.

District Superintendent C.J. Cammack will announce his choice of a successor to Kerry Cusack, the former Alhambra High School vice principal who has been appointed principal of Martinez Junior High School.

The Board will examine its inter-district transfer policies and procedures, elect officers and consider creating a new job, facilities support specialist, and consider reducing its food service staff.

The panel also will vote on a memorandum of understanding with New Leaf Collaborative.

The Board will meet at 6 p.m. Monday to consider legal and personnel matters. The regular meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the MUSD Board Room, 921 Susana St.
